After a 20-year off-Broadway run and over 3,000 positive reviews, fan favorite FOREVER PLAID comes to DVD for the first time! Struggling to make it as a swing and standards harmony group, the Plaids are suddenly wiped out by a school bus while driving to their first real gig. Nearly fifty years later, they re returned to Earth to put on the show they never performed.
Packed with vintage charm and the quirky fun of live musical theater, FOREVER PLAID focuses on the band s second earthly appearance, where they face the cosmic stakes of their performance: to hit the perfect harmonic chord buried in the song Love Is a Many Splendored Thing a chord they never hit in life.
